I dropped BlazBlue: Alter Memory after it failed to impress me after the third episode... I had no idea what the fuck is going on, the characters were annoying and apart from a cute loli vampire absolutely nothing made me watch this show...
I think I'm going to drop Golden Time from my weekly shows this season. I didn't know it is going to be a two-cour shows, but I'm going to stop watching it weekly at this moment, and use the slot for something else. I might consider Coppelion if it's good.
I'm regretfully dropping Kill La Kill.
Much like Gurren Laggan I loved the animation, soundtrack, and voice cast. But the story was just... not for me. The over the top school uniform based battling thing and cliche "Inigo Montoya" motivation for the protag is just...*groan*. It's really a shame I can't find a way to get behind the story because all the other elements are there but I just can't do it.
I'm not sure Coppelion is a series I'd recommend adding. It's a good show, but so far slow paced. The manga itself starts slow, the anime has so far been loyal. Coppelion should have been two cour, not enough plot will be covered after one. It's a good enough show I won't try talking you out of it too aggressively. But if you're looking to add a one cour show, there are better. I haven't seen your list, but if you're not watching Outbreak Company, that might be a good show to watch. The premise is silly, even by moe anime standards, but once it gets going it's a very funny, likable show. Probably my favorite comedy of the season.

I don't think Golden Time is really bad, but I just found so far it's mediocre and.. it's not worth the effort of keeping up with it weekly. I might revisit Golden Time again sometime in the future if it turns out to be an excellent adaptation.
The reason why I considered Coppelion was because Crunchyroll simulpub including its manga in the list. So I thought the manga must be decently popular, though I don't think the animation style fits me. I might check Outbreak Company, I think I don't have comedy series to watch, so far in this season.
The animation is one of Coppelion's best points, along with the voice acting. It's been animated in a style similar to Mardock Scramble and K, also by GoHands. It's just one of those series that takes a while to establish it's main plot. After five episodes the story still feels like a prologue, episodic, and only hinting at the main plot. Coppelion is worth watching, but a little frustrating watching weekly.Quote:
I'm dropping Tokyo Ravens.
There is just too much about it I'm not liking. The blending of Mecha and Spiritual stuff is not really my cup of tea to begin with but the use of CG animation for all the mecha parts makes it downright hard on the eyes. Voice acting seemed solid but that can only get a series so far without the dialogue and story to back it up; and I wasn't very thrilled with either.
I'm dropping Pupa before it airs. Reason? The episodes will only be 5 minutes long... I won't watch such a show... Too bad.
Only one Ive dropped this season is Galilei Donna, though I had never had much interest in it to begin with I was just watching it to fill time. Thankfully it turned out pretty rotten and dull in terms of being lost on what it wanted to accomplish. Had dropped Kill la Kill for a week, but picked it up again once Nudist Beach came. Guess Ill stick with it.
I dropped Meganebu. I find myself distracted whenever I watch it, and I don't have much of a desire to check out the new episodes. If the episodes were only 12 minutes, it might be a little better.
Dropped Blazblue after failing to bring myself to watch the episode after a third successive week. Just not interesting enough, especially you have no idea what the game is about.
I dropped Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiinda ga. after one episode, or rather I put it on hold until the BluRay release. Thanks to the ridiculous censorship it is unwatchable for me.
It can't be helped...

I also dropped Z/X Ignition. This basically screams Pokémon x YGO and the characters were lame.
Hoozuki no Reitetsu has no chance either. Comedy wasn't to my liking.

You didnt like Zillion of Enemy X Ignition, the monsters designs are extremely cool (Orichalcum Tyranno even), and the music is hot, not to mention Syo Kurusu va is voicing Tennoji
